Ok I feel good about this post. Nothing off topic this time :)

Today I went on a school excursion, walked probably a good 5 miles, and had fun not sitting at my desk all day. We went to the sea, and the kids and I tried capturing stuff lol. It was a lot of fun. I made a short but sweet video from today, so hopefully you enjoy.

Couple of the pics enlarged because I know the vid quality isn't going to be great.











After school I finally manned up and went to this restaurant I have been wanted to try but haven't because I did not want to go alone. I told Jordan I would start testing places out though around the house so this was #1. It was a success. I was weary of ramen after my last experience. I had ramen in Yokohama and it wasn't bad, but it wasn't great either, definitely not worth the $10 I paid for it. Well I had said I was going to give it another shot, because I wouldn't let one shop label my whole ramen outlook. So I went to a local shop just next to the train station here, no one was inside when I got there so the coast was clear haha. I ordered just your basic Shouyu Ramen (Shouyu is Soy Sauce) So on that not Soy Sauce is not called Soy Sauce here, and chopsticks are called Hashi.. There's your Japanese lesson for the day :) Anyways It was a Soy Sauce based Ramen with Bamboo, Bean Sprouts, and Seaweed in it. It was fire. Straight up great, I will definitely be going back to try other things, and it was ¥600, so not too bad. This definitely gives pho a run or its money, in my opinion its better in the sense of natural flavor, because lets all be honest. Pho without the cocksauce and soy sauce isn't the best tasting soup in the world. So heres some pics of the damage.

    I love the video and the music! It made me wish I was there. Those kids sure are cute. I don't know about what was in that bucket tho..kind of creepy looking - were they leeches or snails? Looked humongous whatever they were. I would have liked to have seen that octopus some more. The ramen did look good though. I noticed that even the kids lunches looked quite tasty and decorated all nicely too. You're looking very good and trim...I bet all those girls like it!!
    Love,

  5. yea they were weird, I held the crab and cucumbers though, they were really slimy. Cucumbers were in the bucket grandma. Yea Bento lunches are sometimes decorated pretty nice, like mine had heart shaped pink rice and flowers in it haha.

    And thanks Yuta, you need to come while I am here so we can kick it one day.

  6. Yuta should come when I go. That would be tight. I pretty much feel the same way, exept my craving to go to Japan just gets worse every time I look at your blog.

    P.S. Patty cakes doesnt believe that girls in Japan can have western names like Alice and Marie. I lul'ed. But then again Okinawa is probably a hell of alot different than mainland.
